Lesson Introduction: (5 min)

(Activate background knowledge & set purpose)

On the back rug we will discus what a goal is; something you are trying to do or achieve. We will talk about
how each goal needs steps to follow in order to accomplish their goals. With every goal there are opinions and
thoughts that are included to strengthen their topics for their persuasive writing. I will mention how a huge part
of editing, which we focused on yesterday can be when we set a goal and provide examples which is using
another strategy to improve our writing.

Activities/Procedures: (5-10 min)

Lesson Plans are conducive to student achievement and focus on PA State CC standards and objectives

I will distribute third grade opinion writing checklists to each student. As a whole group we will go over the
anchor chart, see attachment. We will discus the steps to follow in their writing notebooks. I will call on about
three or four students to give me their topics to try and get some ideas they can do to improve their papers and
create goals to set for themselves.

Closing& Assessment: (20 min)

Students will return to their seats with their writing notebooks and checklists. They are going to create their own
ultimate goal and ideas they can think of to help make improvements. Individually, the students will think of
ideas and write them down on the next clean page of their notebooks. Then they will continue writing their
persuasive writing including their new changes they wrote about. I will go around individually to every student
and find out where they are and what they need more support or help with as well as ensuring they are where
they are expected and can follow the lesson.
